You are invited to join us in celebrating Thanksgiving, the compassionate way. Our annual Veg. Thanksgiving dinner is back and we’ve been working to make it bigger and better than ever before.
In addition to our scheduled FREE full course vegan dinner, catered by local vegan restaurant Flaming Ice Cube (Gardein/Tofurky roasts, gravy, mashed potatoes, green bean almondine, and garlicky kale), this event includes a main course of enlightening education, massive side portions of acoustic rockery, and a bounty of compassionate raffles.
Our Guest of Honor:
Aysha Akhtar MD, MPH
We are pleased to announce our guest speaker for the 2013 dinner, Dr. Aysha Akhtar. Dr. Akhtar is a neurologist and public health specialist, the author of the book "Animals and Public Health.
